The Damen Shipyards Group of the Netherlands and the Hellenic Marine Equipment Manufacturers and Exports (HEMEXPO), a suppliers and export association in the Greek maritime industry, have agreed to enhance cooperation in shipbuilding and development of marine equipment and ship technology.

The declaration of intent recently signed by the two parties involves sharing of information about new marine equipment and shipbuilding technologies, the organisation of networking events to promote co-operation between Damen and Greek suppliers in various projects and where possible including Greek suppliers in Damen’s supply chain.

The Damen and HEMEXPO partnership is also one of the contenders in the Hellenic Navy’s corvette procurement program. As part of the program, construction of the corvettes must also involve the participation of Greek defence and shipbuilding firms.
